Republican Congress becoming personality cult for Donald Trump

To The Herald-Whig:

The last two speakers of the Republican House, John Boehner and Paul Ryan, have resigned from their positions and from politics. They had no health or legal issues nor any other compelling reason to resign from one of the most powerful positions in the world.

On Fareed Zakaria GPS, the CNN program, this was discussed with two conservatives, Mona Charen and Dan Senor. They came to the conclusion that the speakers retired because the Republican House of Representatives is dysfunctional and "in danger of becoming a personality cult for Donald Trump."

So their question was, "Is there any room for a traditional Republican in the current hyper-partisan and nativist Republican Party?"

My question is "What is a responsible Republican voter to do, especially one that doesn't care for the taste of Kool-Aid?"
